Plan A

 

Snip20171120_109

The Agenda is all subject to change dependant on the needs of the group and to consider the pace that we need to take. “For a successful pilgrimage experience, the outer journey must never be so filled with activity that the inner journey is crowded out.” pg 6 Soulfaring. “Thus the focus of a pilgrimage is the interior growth resulting from an exterior journey.” pg 9 Soulfaring. “So it is a search for self and a search for God or the divine. A generous time needs to be allowed at each holy place, this may mean that the pilgrimage visits fewer holy sites, it also means pilgrims will be able to savor the particular spiritual qualities or numen of each place. Such use of time will greatly enhance the overall pilgrimage.”  Pg 6 Soulfaring Celtic Pilgrimage Then and Now, by Cintra Pemberton, O.S.H.

A suggestion was given of a Taxi service, this may be a cheaper option for our transportation needs when we are visiting.

Morning session Labyrinth

The first morning for our spiritual activity will be to go walk a Labyrinth. Each other morning session will be a reflective exercise or artistic activity. Each person on the group is asked to participate by contributing by leading a session for the group. They may abstain from doing so, it is a challenge by choice. The participation would, however, give to the whole from the varying backgrounds and perspective of the group. We would bookend the Pilgrimage, and conclude our time together with a Labyrinth if time permits, and if I can locate a different location Labyrinth. Labyrinth Meditation

The thought presently is to walk a small section of the St. Cuthbert Way to allow us to have experienced the route Cuthbert could have possibly taken.   http://www.stcuthbertsway.info/?product=scw-short-walks

Before departing to return to the US, we would bookend the journey with the conclusion of walking the Labyrinth. To compare our heart after the experience of the Pilgrimage.
